The Spurs retook advantage of the series after they won in Oakland and now the Warriors look to even the series once again. Get NBA odds at Bovada sportsbook.
The Spurs (2-1) were outplayed in both games on their home floor but somehow survived Game 1 so the series was even after the two games in San Antonio. In Game 3, the Spurs came out ready to play and took it to Golden State. Tony Parker scored 32 points and Tim Duncan added 23 and 10 rebounds to lead the Spurs to the victory. But, maybe the most important player on the floor for the Spurs was Danny Green. Green defended Stephen Curry for much of the game and it led to a 5-17 shooting night for Curry. San Antonio did not shoot well from three-point range but they were able to limit the Warriors’ three pointers significantly.
The Warriors (1-2) absolutely need this Game 4 win. Golden State cannot afford to be down 3-1 when the series goes back to San Antonio for Game 5, that will be incredibly dangerous. For the first time this series, the Warriors were outplayed and just were not be able to knock down shots. Curry only finished with 16 points while Klay Thompson had just 17 on 7-20 shooting. David Lee tried playing with his injury but just played three minutes, but scored five points.
The Spurs are 5-2 against the spread in the post season while the Warriors are no longer undefeated at 8-1. Game 3 was the first game they were unable to cover the spread.
I think Golden State will win Game 4 and will be able to shoot a little bit on their home floor. This series will be 2-2 heading back to San Antonio but first read sportsbook reviews.
